Anyone know how Medicaid and babies work?
So, if you've been following the chat thread you know DH lost his job, we lost insurance, and I was applying for Pg medicaid.
Well, today I found out I was approved! Yay! Relief! I know I'm qualified for 6 mo.
Here's the question: When baby is born, she will probably automatically have to have NICU care just like DS did. How does Medicaid typically work with that? Is she under my medicaid stuff until we are released from the hospital, do we have to immediately apply for her own medicaid, and also, how would my hubby having a job by then, at which point we would no longer "qualify" for medicaid according to income, affect the baby's ability to get medicaid even when we won't yet have insurance that we can put her on?
I realize no one can give "official" answers, but even the medicaid people can't answer these questions because there aren't answers they already have that they can read to me. Bleh.
So, anyone have experience with this??
